Intensive Outpatient Programs provide treatment for substance abuse that is generally a cross between regular inpatient treatment and a standard outpatient treatment program. 

Also known as IOP, Intensive Outpatient Programs are much more extensive than regular Outpatient Treatment Programs. However, they do not require the person to stay at a facility like regular inpatient treatment requires

Intensive Outpatient Programs generally meet 3 to 5 days a week for a few hours each time. Normally the first step is to develop a treatment plan. The individual will then participate in group and individual counseling sessions. They will also learn about the disease of addiction and relapse prevention techniques. 

Also, we offer family counseling services, case management, and medication management services if needed. Intensive Outpatient Programs can also help a person gain employment and get psychiatric care if necessary. At 1000 Hills Treatment Center, our IOP Program is patient-centered and always solution-focused for lasting recovery.

Intensive Outpatient Programs Treatment Goals

The National Institute of Health reports that:

Substance abuse intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are direct services for people with substance use disorders or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders who do not require medical detoxification or 24-hour supervision. IOPs are alternatives to inpatient and residential treatment. They are designed to establish psychosocial supports and facilitate relapse management and coping strategies. They are as effective as inpatient treatment for most individuals seeking care. (NIH)

Intensive Outpatient Programs generally do not offer detox services. If an individual is in need of detox or 24 hour medical care, then regular inpatient treatment would probably be the best course of action.

Intensive Outpatient Programs Treatment Goals

Some of the goals of Intensive Outpatient Programs can include:

  • Staying sober
  • Achieving behavioral changes
  • Developing a good support system
  • Participating in groups and 12-step meetings
  • Improving problem-solving skills
  • Addressing psychosocial concerns such as employment, housing, and meeting any probation requirements
  • Developing a treatment plan and short- and long-term goals
  • Treatment plan updates and following up on goals that were developed

Intensive Outpatient Programs or IOP are usually cheaper and as effective as standard Inpatient Treatment, and the individual is able to go back home each day. IOP’s are ideal for someone that does not have a physical dependence on a substance, or is not experiencing any serious withdrawal symptoms and can manage the symptoms on their own.

Sometimes a person will go to a standard Inpatient Treatment Program and then transfer over to our Intensive Outpatient Program. Addiction is a chronic relapsing disease. For anyone that fears that they may not be able to stay sober after an Inpatient or Residential Treatment Program or for anyone that is having issues with chronic relapses, IOP’s are a great option. Intensive Outpatient Programs normally do perform regular drug tests. This helps to hold each participant accountable especially since they are able to go back home each day
